Here's the article link:http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050826/ap_on_he_me/autistic_boy_s_death
At the end of the article was a link to discuss. I clicked on it thinking it would be somthing like on here. Stupid me.
Although there were some parents on there that TRIED to discuss, there were ignorant fools and racists, and people I don't even have words for. Here's some comments;
"look at his name...some kind
of foreign trash.....good riddance"
"kid dead = problem solved"
"GOOD! those FREAKS should die autistics should be euthanized as soon as they are diagnosed"
"GOD HATES 'TARDS That's why he kills them young."
"BEST THING ABOUT BANGING AUTISTIC **** most of the time they keep f___ing quite, they don't even start crying or anything, even if you are raping them...kinda nice"
(I deleted their names, and I changed the curse words so they woudn't get deleted, but you get the picture.) The more I read, the more I cried. If I could figure out a way to find out who that last one was (probably some punk 16 yr old who never even leaves his house)I'd probably drag him to the police myself. I'd actually probably do much worse, since I was a victim of date rape in college. Its gonna be hard to think "Christ-like" on this one.
This is Michael, my son w/ Asperger's who just moved out to Mississippi w/ his dad, because he wanted to spend some time w/ him (male bonding I guess). But he's been calling and telling me that some boys have started rumors about him that he's gay. He has no idea what to do, he's not gay, but he is different. He has "ticks", he has a VERY high intelligence, he sounds more like a teacher when he talks because he has very stilted speech. He likes girls, but like most boys, freezes up around them, and then has the extra pressure of not being good in social situations to begin with. I want to cry for him, because now he's all alone out there, and i can't help him; and its because of IDIOTS like those above. I realize these are just kids doing this to him in school, but where do you think they learned it from?
Sometimes I wonder why God, knowing what we would be capapble of, would even want to create us in the first place. <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
